The compact bag: an ideal solution for a weekend of up to 3 days/2 nights. This is the most optimized size for short getaways. Opt for the 24h format, highly compartmentalized and multifunctional.

The weekend bag: perfect for short stays including several distinct events where having different outfits – more casual and more chic – is de rigueur, or for longer weekends requiring you to bring a larger number of outfits.
